From amazing wildlife and festivals, to scenic beauty, there’s plenty to inspire your next adventure. Read on to find out their recommendations for where to go in August…
Our pick: the best places to visit in August
August sees temperatures peak in Iceland – expect the mercury to hit the high teens (and even the 20s if it’s a heatwave!). Coupled with the long hours of daylight, it makes it a fantastic time of year to tour the Land of Fire and Ice.
2. Eastern Canada
Eastern Canada follows similar seasonal patterns as the UK. So visiting during August is a great time to explore as you will be guaranteed warm and dry weather and really make the most of the stunning Canadian landscape. Festivals are also in full swing, including the Montreal Jazz extravaganza, while summer is also the best time to visit the mighty Niagara Falls.

During the height of summer you can expect to enjoy glorious warm weather, summer flowers blooming along the riverbanks and attractions in full flow. There are also plenty of warm, light evenings to sit up on deck, enjoy a drink and watch the changing scenery pass by.

The wild beauty of Alaska is at its best during the state’s short summer, when days are long (expect around 19 hours of daylight in Anchorage). August is also peak whale-watching season in Alaska, which lasts until September – look out for majestic humpbacks and killer whales.
